    So are you sure you want to get rid of the aid.. I mean it is only 24 billion.. In the whole cutting spending wheel.. where do you think you can get more money.. cutting aid, or cutting earmarks and other pork?
    What do you think the chances are of getting Washington to cut the pork, in this "no more earmarks" administration?

This procedure was not followed and the rule of law was abandoned. Surely you are not arguing for the selective enforcement of the constitution?
    Works in this country... in fact it has for the last 100+ years or so.
